Support Groups for Clergy and Spouses

For the past two years, the Laurence Schmidt Center has offered Clergy Support Groups for pastors in the Little Rock and El Dorado areas. This fall both of those groups will continue, but we also hope to add an additional group in the Fort Smith area and a brand new group in Little Rock specifically for Clergy Spouses.

These groups meet monthly for two hours. They are confidential and affordably priced. Please contact our center if you are interested.

If you are clergy, please pass along the information to your spouse, about this special resource for them.

Fall groups will begin in August and meet through December. Spring groups start in January and go through May.

Do you have questions about groups? Contact the center’s director, Rebecca Spooner at or call the center at (501) 664.7777. To sign up for a group, contact administrator Karen Minor (501) 664-7777 or email her at
